Overview
This entertaining little book contains scores of thoughts, opinions, witticisms, and insights on two of the necessities and greatest pleasures of life. Included are humorous comments by Samuel Johnson ("A cucumber should be well-sliced, dressed with pepper and vinegar, and then thrown out.") and Henny Youngman ("My grandmother is over eighty and still doesn't need glasses. Drinks right out of the bottle."); incisive remarks by George Bernard Shaw ("Alcohol is the anesthesia by which we endure the operation of life.") and Mark Twain ("Eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside."); along with hilarious and frequently thoughtful advice from Robert Morley, G. K. Chesterton, W. C. Fields, Julia Child, Andy Rooney, Marilyn Monroe, Elsa Schiaparelli, and a host of other writers, humorists, and celebrities. Arranged according to subject (alcohol, cheese, cooking, fruits and vegetables, diet, hunger, etc.), this delightful collection will be welcomed by public speakers, speech writers, and general readers."
